Don't mean to be a drag, but apparently the mayor came out and said there are 6 fatalities as of 7:32pm...keep the prayers comin' to keep loss of life at a minimum.

Chef Ken and carlg, are you and your families safe? I have tried to call relatives and you guys but circuits have been busy, as to be expected. Please let us know that all Cruise-Chat members in the Twin Cities are okay, as well as their families. We are praying for you all!

It is truly a miracle that more people were not killed. It is a terrible disaster, which should have never happened. I read the report this morning that 9 were killed and 60 injured, but they were still searching for submerged vehicles. My prayers are with all and I am very hopeful they will find out the reason for this tragedy and insure it doesn't occur anywhere else. Glad to hear Chef Ken and Greyson are ok, hope we hear from the others soon!!
